Charming year-round Healdsburg River home nestled among the Cedar & Redwood trees takes you away from the hustle bustle. Only a six minute drive from Healdsburg Plaza, wine country is just minutes away!

The space

Our rustic Russian River cottage offers everything you need for an enjoyable stay in the heart of California wine country. Tasting rooms and wineries galore are located just minutes away in Healdsburg, Dry Creek, Alexander Valley, Calistoga, Forestville, and Guerneville (Armstrong Redwoods).

The living area is comfortable and cozy, complete with river stone fireplace (decorative only), cable TV, wifi, central heat, and AC. The master bedroom (queen bed) is just off the living room and sleeps two. The first bathroom has a shower (note: there is no tub). Large adjoining light-filled charming knotty pine room with a vaulted beamed ceiling adds an additional private sleeping area for two with a couch, two twin beds and an adjacent 1/2 bath. The large front deck and back patio (with 4 person hot tub) offer up the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of wine tasting, shopping, or Russian River adventures.

There is parking space for 2 cars on the property. The maximum number of vehicles allowed is 2. (Sonoma County Code Section (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)).

This house is located across the street from the beautiful Russian River. There is a public access path to the river just a short walk from the house. While you can access the river at this point, there is no beach at the end of this path. Healdsburg Veterans Memorial Beach Park is located 3 miles from the house.

Nearby, the Healdsburg Plaza resembles a miniature Carmel CA, with fine art galleries, specialty and antique shops, restaurants, wine bars, and tasting rooms. Other special surroundings include golf, world-class wineries, festivals, canoeing, kayaking & picnicking. Healdsburg is just over an hour away from from San Francisco (easy access from scenic 101 North), two hours from Sacramento, 45 minutes from Bodega Bay and Jenner by the Sea.

I live and work in San Francisco. I always have my phone on me and I'm just a call away if you have any questions or issues.

Cozy Cabin. Katie has made her home very comfortable. We were close to town and to the wineries. We would recommend Gustafson winery. Great view of Sonoma lake and great wine. Dry Creek restaurant was amazingly good. The town was festive with Christmas decorations. Katie is easily accessible for any questions. We played games and drank the local wines. Memorable holiday.

House was clean and located in very peaceful destination. Katie responded very quickly to all my questions. We also enjoyed jacuzzi after a long day of wine tasting.

We had a great time at Katie's place. It was close enough to downtown to get to all the action within about 10 minutes, but far enough out to feel like we were in a cabin in the woods. It was very cozy, comfortable, and warm. As someone who obsesses over leaving the air bnbs I stay in spotless, I really appreciated that she specifically said housekeeping would strip the beds and wash the dishes-saved me a lot of time when we had to leave for the airport at 6 am! Most of all, Katie was a wonderful host and went well out of her way to accommodate us as we had to change some of our plans due to the wildfires.

My two girlfriends and I had a wonderful time at Russian River Cottage! It was very clean and the beds and bedding were very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again. Great communication with Katie and check in was super easy!

A great drive to a secluded cabin on the river was the perfect first trip to Healdsburg. We loved the place so much. The hot tub, sleeping arrangements, kitchen and bathroom amenities were all beyond adequate for our group. We played Pictionary (provided) every night and really enjoyed ourselves. The walk to the river was so close to the house and a fun bonus to cool off. Katie was the best host, so accommodating and easy to talk to. We cannot wait to stay in the cabin again!

Cute place to spend a quiet weekend. The location is great if you're looking to spend time by the river, there's a great access points just a minute up the road. Getting to downtown Healdsburg proved to be a little more difficult as the roads are super uneven - totally fine in an SUV but I'd recommend driving extra slowly if you have low clearance. The house was clean and cozy. Tight quarters in the bathroom, so probably not ideal for people on the taller side. Unfortunately the AC wouldn't get any lower than 78 and it was a really hot day (102 out) so tough to fall asleep... guessing this is a glitch that will get fixed soon, so shouldn't be an issue.
